I hammered away at a long-delayed chapter that was based on my interactions (loosely, of course) with my first Boss. I was stuck in a way, since I never called him by his first or last name. It was always Boss. It was my way of getting around being overly familiar with my mentor and superior. And, given that this is fiction, I had to refer to him by a made up alias. As a result, I over-used that alias in sentences and in paragraphs for that chapter. i did not realize it all while I was typing.
I second Vicki’s request. It’s something that reveals itself when read out aloud. But it is too easy to overuse a name. And, of course, we all want to avoid entering dreaded Redundant Department of Redundancies. I know the way to meet Vicki’s request is a time-hammering split each sentence into individual words and then attach a recount limit of two for non noise words (a, to, the, etc.). The Paragraph repetition slider would be eons slower and more complex. Maybe counting Capped words separately might be a smart way to go. I can see a paragraph limit of three non-capped words and four capped ones. But a graph that is one sentence long is a different creature than is one that is five … or EVEN MORE sentences long. Glad YOU are doing the coding, not me.
By the way, I have moved the most work-intensive book from yWriter to Atomic Scribbler and have found myself enjoying the experience. Like Vicki, I look forward to the Smart Edit integration into it. I appreciated the free licence upgrade to Smart Edit that brought me to current for participating in the survey. Thanks for that. I downloaded the SE for Word add-in. But I just couldn’t bring myself to install it because I don’t use Word more or less out of principle. I would NOT hate you transporting SE to LibreOffice (a fork of OpenOffice) Writer. But since Atomic Scribbler with Smart Edit seems to resolve all of my fiction writing needs, I can live with out. I see no reason for you to devote time and effort to work that does not profit you in some way.
Keep up the good work. But pay attention to Vicki. She’s on to something. GM
